“Writing the Luxembourg”
Sara Galletti received a joint Ph.D. in the History of Architecture and Urbanism from the Université de Paris IV–Sorbonne and the Università IUAV of Venice. Her main field of research and teaching is the history and theory of sixteenth-and seventeenth-century architecture in France. Her first book, Le Palais du Luxembourg de Marie de Médicis, 1611-1631, was recently published by Éditions Picard (Paris, 2012). She is currently working on a project titled Practice into Theory: Philibert Delorme, the Premier Tome de l’Architecture (1567), and the Profession of Architecture in Early Modern France, which analyses the connections between architectural theory and practice in fifteenth- to seventeenth-century France.
